Dumping TPP put serious kink in globalists' plans

By Dr. Harold Pease

       Many still do not understand the significance of President Trump's Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) pullout. It was the most serious blow to the globalists in 100 years.
       The political literature of that time shows that internationalism, world government, new world order (NWO), world order and globalism are synonymous. They suggest a progressive transfer of national sovereignty to a higher level of government such as the United Nations. The idea of the 1950s and

1960s was to increasingly enlarge the UN until it was the recognized world government with total power. When possible, this process continues.
       Because countries were slow to forfeit their national sovereignty to the UN, proponents next encouraged regional governments - uniting countries into geographical units, as for example the European Union - then later, when peoples and nations got used to this power transfer, they would be united into a single political unit.
       The plan was to begin with economic unity, then progress to the political unity desired, precisely as was successful in the E U. The unification of Europe into a regional government processed through the following five stages: European Coal and Steel Community, Common Market, European Economic Community, European Community and finally, when political unity was possible, European Union.
       The USSR, after the fall of communism in 1989, transformed itself into the Commonwealth of Independent States Free Trade Area (CISFTA) - a regional government of nations still under the control of Russia. The world has since been divided into other regional governments, each following the European Union model, and free trade agreements (economic persuasion) have been the favorite tool.
       'Free trade' - a somewhat deceptive term
       Currently there are 23 such regional agreements, each at a different stage in the unification of the countries in their regions and most still saddled by the necessity of using the somewhat deceptive “free trade” terminology. In time the plan is to reduce 206 countries to less than 20 regional governments, turning these countries into mere states of regional countries - a much more manageable world, globalists believe.
       Some of these would-be regional governments have progressed beyond the need to keep the “free trade” terminology when they describe themselves. An example is the African Economic Community and the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), both uniting large sections of Africa. Another is the Council of Arab Economic Unity (CAEU), uniting northern Islamic Africa and the Middle East. South America is to be united by the Southern Cone Common Market, frequently referred to as Mercosur. It has progressed to the point that it now has a Joint Parliamentary Committee, which is a final step toward political unification.
       But most still need to use the “free trade” term. Central Europe is to be united by the Central European Free Trade Agreement (CEFTA). The South Asian Free Trade Area (SAFTA) exists to unite countries from Afghanistan to Sri Lanka.
       NAFTA supposed to lead to a borderless 'North American Union'
       In the United States, the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA) was to gradually unite Canada, the United States and Mexico into one regional government, as the European Union had united Europe. A real border was never to be implemented because in time we were to be the North American Union, complete with open borders of the people within and with an amero dollar to match the euro dollar.
       To globalists, national sovereignty is the enemy. The United States' Declaration of Independence, Constitution and Bill of Rights, which depend on and protect national sovereignty, cannot be allowed to obstruct the move to a world government.
       There was a reason why the U.S. was not to have an effective southern border prior to the political unification of the three countries. It was because Mexico was so far behind the other two countries in economic development; it needed time to elevate itself. Mexicans flooding the U.S. for better paying jobs - and many sending a portion of their money back to families in Mexico or opting to retire in their homeland with pensions acquired in the U. S. - helped in Mexico's economic elevation.
       TPP would have governed 40 percent of U.S. imports
       Some trade agreements also intentionally interlaced with other trade agreements. The three countries in NAFTA also are signatories of the 5,600-page TPP that was just ended by President Trump. Had it been implemented, it would have governed 40 percent of U.S. imports and exports and 26 percent of the world's trade. It would have been the law of the land for the United States and 11 other countries in the Asia-Pacific region regardless of what the U.S. Constitution might say.
       Its sister trade deal the Transatlantic Trade and Investment Partnership (TTIP), called for by President Barack Obama in his 2013 State of the Union Address, would have economically merged the European Union and the United States with respect to market access, specific regulation and broader rules. Secret negotiations on the TTIP are expected to continue through 2020 and remain classified, so the extent of this merger is unknown.
       Trump's opposition to illegal immigration and his pulling out of the TPP negotiations are the most serious blows to the globalists in 100 years and will never be tolerated by them. They will continue to spew hate for him. In addition, his announced objective to renegotiate NAFTA and his probable pull-out of TTIP may make him the most influential president, in rescuing us from world government. .
